Hazing in Sports: Yes It's Happening in Your School It's Just Locker Room Talk or is it?
December 11, 2019 

Bullying is everywhere in our schools, our streets, and our corporations. But in the world of sports, bullying rules. Whether you realize or not, hazing is very likely happening to some extent in your athletic department. Fifty-percent of college students experience hazing in high school, primarily through sports. The number one location it occurs is in the locker room. This workshop focuses on the old saying “What's said in the locker room, stays in the locker room.” But, what if the comments are abusive, homophobic, and sexually objectify others? Come join in this important dialogue.

A Free 15-Hour Course on Sheltered English Instruction
Developed by the SRI&ETTC Funded by the New Jersey Department of Education

Educating students who still are acquiring English proficiency can be complex in an age of high stakes evaluations and assessments as well as college and career-ready standards. English language learners (ELLs) are not monolithic in their educational background, cultural experiences, and ability to adapt to learning environments. However, through well-planned instruction, ELLs can attain challenging academic standards.

The FABRIC paradigm taught in The SEI Online allows teachers to provide diverse groups of ELLs with access to classroom content while they acclimate to an English learning environment.

NGSS - Two Topics Together! 
January 15, 2020

In this workshop participants will have the chance to explore two exciting Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) topics together.

Topic One : Science and Engineering: Perfect Together! 
The NGSS has catapulted engineering education to a prominent place in all classrooms where science is taught. In this workshop participants will discuss what should engineering look and sound like in a classroom setting.

Topic Two : Science, Engineering and ELA: Even Better Together! 
ELA literacy capacities (reading, writing, language, speaking and listening, media and tech) can support and enhance how students process and make sense of science and engineering concepts. In this workshop participants will learn how to integrate the three topics.
